Today was an amazing day in my classroom.  All of the student work surfaces were installed along with new round tables and some really cool stools to use at the computer work stations.  Everything arrived except for my new desk 🙁

Check out the pictures of my almost complete classroom.  I am starting to see the big picture and am so excited about school starting in a couple of weeks!!!

When my husband and I walked into my classroom tonight all we could say was WOW!!! The muralist, Gayle, did an amazing job with my classroom walls.  I think my students are going to love it.  I can’t wait to see their faces and hear what they have to say about how my classroom looks.

Even though school is out, I can’t stop going by my room to see what they have gotten finished. I was so excited when I walked in this afternoon. The shower that used to be in one of the corners of my room is being turned into a closet.  YEAH!!!!!!

Today a crew of more than 10 Knox County maintenance workers and their supervisors came in and discussed my vision for my new classroom, after which they started demolishing my classroom.
